1911 Pierce-Arrow Model 48

The Pierce-Arrow Model 48 continued the company's reputation for luxury and innovation. On December 12, 1912, the company applied for a patent that concerned headlights mounted on the crown of the fenders to allow for improved lighting. The grant was approved on February 24th of 1914 and was first seen as a Model 48-B2. The car also included electric sidelights integrated into the cowl.

The average price for a seven-passenger Tourer would set the buyer back nearly $5000. The cars were powered by a six-cylinder, 525 cubic-inch, T-head engine which was capable of producing 48 horsepower. The car was controlled by a four-speed sliding gear transmission and had rear wheel brakes. The suspension was comprised of a semi-floating rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs.

Two extra folding seats came standard on the Model 48. An electric generator and starter, electric Klaxon horn, gas gauge, autometer, speedometer, rear footrest, rail blanket, electric lights, dual side-mounted spares, and a full set of tools were also standard.
